I have been watching the excellent 16 part Sharpe's Rifles series staring Sean Bean for the second time around. They are based on the books by Bernard Cornwell. I found this book while searching for more information on the Baker Rifle that Bean and his men were armed with. I found what I was looking for in the introduction and much more in the book. The book brings life into this period of history. Take a look if you like military history of even movies of this period. You will not be disappointed.
